Learning Standards



Prompt: The great poet W. B. Yeats wrote, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but rather the lighting of a fire."  Write a personal narrative telling a story about a time when this "fire" for learning was lit inside of you. Perhaps you were inspired to learn more about a subject or pursue a deeper understanding of a topic on your own. In your narrative, make sure that you explore the significance of both Yeats' quote and your own experience as it relates to your perception of education and its importance to your future.
